well i would just like to fit some bigger tires, it has a 2in leveling kit but some guys said that i still couldnt run bigger so i figured a lift was the only way.

the toyos have the E rating which may be necessary if you do any hauling or towing..not to mention that the extended tread life makes them more cost effective in the long run

yea but about all i haul in my atv, the last toyos i bought(35x12.5x18) were 387 a piece..thats ridiculous. but i guess if the last longer it could work out better. im tryin to keep my cost under 6500 if at all possible. do you guys install the lifts yourselves or get someone else to do the install?

I have a 6" with 35's check out pure performance( aka Rock Krawler) very nice stuff. Word of advice do a long arm kit you will regret if you don't, any thing more than a 3" is too much for a short arm.

i agree with liftman. spend the exta money and do a long arm kit.
pure performance has some very nice stuff. i have the adj. trac bar from them, very happy with the product.

oh and if you already have a 2 inch leveling kit you can run 35s but you have to have a2 inch spacer in between the duals so they dont touch

By the way a SRW lift will work for a dually you just need to splurge for the springs in the rear instead of just blocks.

well..youll need the lift, some spacers in the back, tires, and wheels

i know that for my 2001 2500 I was quoted 4800 with everything installed including toyo m/ts 35x12.5 r20, 20x10 mazzi hulk, and superlift 5" with bilstein

so 1700 more for 2 more tires, and spacers is completly doable

your 6500 budget might be a little more than you actually need but try and negotiate shock upgrades and such at no charge..they DO want your business:thumbsup
